CavePermanent Records isn't only one of Chicago's most solid record shops
-- it is also an independent label known for releasing excellent psych,
experimental, garage, and punk albums. Tonight, two bands from their current/previous
roster, RUNNING and CAVE, stop in Boston to play a stacked noisy
psych-punk show at Great Scott with Brooklyn's People of the North (ft. members of Oneida) and
Allston's New England Patriots.
Since their 2007 Permanent-pressed LP Hunt Like Devil/Jamz, Cave
have carved out a space for themselves in the world of underground
krautrock-inspired psychedelia with a fairly lengthy discography of LPs,
tapes and 7-inches. Their most recent release is about a year old, Neverendless,
their second out by Drag City. Below is one cut from that LP to get lost in,
"On the Rise", a six-mintue long-burner of cyclical drums and angular
guitars riffs, synth, organ, and minimal vocal chanting.
Running are more abrasive and gritty; their vox are similarly inaudible,
coating their words in reverb and feedback adding another level of noise
to their layered, instrumental punk. Permanent released their self-titled EP in 2010.
